Following up with our recent galleries of the Titans Return Decepticon Triple Changers, we have their Japanese-market counterparts from Transformers Legends! These figures were released in Japan as part of the Legends line, which was a set of figures released under the Generations imprint in the U.S., but with premium paint jobs and often, more cartoon accurate paint. This would be one of the last lines Takara would do with decos that differed from their Hasbro counterparts, before the brand unification that sees all figures released between both markets with identical tooling and decos.

Additionally, two of these figures, Blitzwing and Octane, came with Big Fight (a redeco of Titan Master Ramhorn's vehicle) and Titan Master Ghost Starscream, respectively.

Please enjoy these high quality galleries from the hands (and camera) of Seibertron himself and start tuned to Seibertron for upcoming galleries of Siege Ratbat, Rumble, Rung, and the fifth Ghostbuster, Ectotron!

I really dig my Octane w/ Murk and Ghost Starscream and I wish I had picked up Legends Blitzwing when I saw a good price but I do not like that Astrotrain. Not a fan of the train mode at all, neither on Astrotrain nor on Nemesis Prime. I just don't see what everyone else does in that figure ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

For that particular Nemesis Prime, it was a *lot* of folks update for Scourge from RiD200/Car Robots (admittidadly the TGS exclusive RTS/HftD Laser Prime repaint was pretty good). Combine that with the Baldigus repaint of Combiner Wars Bruticus and you had the best articulared representation of the decepticons from that show.

As for Astrotrain, I think it was more for the color representation and the fully painted head. The shuttle wasn't bad with actual paint on it. The cybertronian train was very reminiscent of the Omega Supreme half from Energon.

I think he meant sentinel safetycone prime

Yeah that was my impression as only Sentinel Prime was redecoed from the Astrotrain mold. I was impressed that they went back to IDW Stormbringer for the design of TR Astrotrain, it was really good to see.

I would love to see that mold in nemesis prime colors now just out of curiosity. It might even look good (at least in spaceshuttle mode)

See that's the kind of historical information that I come to this site for. I appreciate the history lesson! And as an owner of a couple of Takara Legends, you aren't kidding about the paint. I freaking love my Octane.

Yeah, that was my mistake. Big ol' Orange Sentinel Prime. Although now that he is getting some more love in the new IDW comic he's become little more interesting to me.
